Famous quotes containing the word fade:

    These pictures of time;
    They fade in the light of
    Their meaning sublime.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    One by one they appear in
    the darkness: a few friends, and
    a few with historical
    names. How late they start to shine!
    but before they fade they stand
    perfectly embodied,
    Thom Gunn (b. 1929)

    Be near me when I fade away,
    To point the term of human strife,
    And on the low dark verge of life
    The twilight of eternal day.
    Alfred Tennyson (1809–1892)
